The Blind Spot Animal Sanctuary: Capital Improvement Grant Report
How did this grant help your organization and the pets in your care?
Barn! We originally applied to purchase a small building/barn for our goat herd; however, with the generous support of the Petfinder Foundation and additionally raised funds, BSAS was able to purchase a much larger barn that will make a much bigger impact in the lives of countless farm animals. The new barn will provide safety to horses, alpacas, and goats! We are just waiting for delivery and installation.
Receiving this grant from the Petfinder Foundation was an absolute blessing! With your assistance, we were able to put down a deposit for a much larger barn than originally planned. Instead of just buying a small structure to house goats, BSAS was able to put down a deposit for an entire barn that will make a much, much bigger impact for farm animals in need. Your grant allowed us to put down a deposit for a barn that will have eight stalls and will be ready just in time for winter.
We can't thank you enough for supporting our lifesaving mission! Farm animals are often overlooked and left behind, but the Petfinder Foundation showed the world that they matter! For that, we thank you! We cannot wait to show you the new barn. We are expecting delivery in about three weeks. We will take photos and share updates.

Please provide a story of one or more specific pets this grant helped.
Pebbles (first four photos) came to BSAS with an infected wound. She had, sadly, broken her back leg, which required amputation. As the surgery site got infected, Pebbles needed to be seen by North Carolina State veterinarians and required expensive diagnostics. Pebbles was surrendered to BSAS so that she would have a chance at a healthy life. We admitted her and rushed immediately to N.C. State Vet School, where the vet team performed necessary diagnostics and wound treatments.
Today Pebbles is healthy and adoptable. Best of all, she may have found a forever home! Disabled animals are just as worthy!
